Here's Why Your SRD Grant Status Is 'Referred Linked Risk Mobile'

Today we'll be tackling why your R350 grant was rejected because of 'Referred Linked Risk Mobile', what this means and what you can do next. Applications for the SRD grant will close in March 2022.


Have you done a SRD status check and found that you were declined because of 'Referred Linked Risk Mobile'? If you want to know more about what this means and what you can do, keep reading.

During their verification processes after receiving your R350 grant, SASSA puts your ID number and phone number through a Fraud Risk Scoring process. 

If you saw this when you did a R350 grant status check, it means that when SASSA evaluated your SRD grant application, they found that the application received from your phone number is fraudulent.

What you should do about your declined R350 grant

Should you be declined and find that the reason given does not ring true for you, you are encouraged to submit a R350 grant appeal.

The appeal means that SASSA will have to consider your application again. However, it's important to remember that applicants only have 30 days after their SRD grant is rejected to submit a R350 grant appeal.
